Although the PC version will be released a day earlier than announced, the console versions of SpellForce III Reforced have not had the same luck.
THQ Nordic and developer Grimlore Games revealed today that the console versions of SpellForce III Reforced will be delayed until March 2022, citing difficulties in producing and converting the game’s content to the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 editions.
An improved version of the 2017 game
SpellForce III Reforced improves on the original SpellForce III in terms of campaign experience. This new campaign has enhanced real-time strategic elements and redesigned faction designs from the game’s two expansions. Furthermore, the game contains various enhancements to missions, co-op mode, treasure distribution, and balancing.
Furthermore, the enhanced version will have an aesthetically and functionally upgraded user interface, complete gamepad compatibility, and new content. It also adds new modes such as Journey Mode and Arena Mode, as well as improvements to existing features like compatibility with mods from the original version of the game.
A light at the end of this dark tunnel
Although the console versions of SpellForce III Reforced has issues that prevent them from publishing on schedule, PC gamers are fortunate. The PC version is available as a free upgrade to the basic game that was first released in 2017. This change has allowed the PC version to come one day sooner than the date THQ Nordic announced months ago.
So there is some good news!
SpellForce III Reforced will be released on December 6, 2018 for PC. Meanwhile, the console version for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation, and PlayStation 5 launches on March 8, 2022.
In addition, the two SpellForce III Reforced expansions will be released on March 8. “Soul Harvest” and “Fallen God” will be available individually and will each have their own single-player campaign with over 30 hours of action, as well as additional units and other features.
